Hamas Stuns World With Terrorism!_Jonathan Wilson-They Call This 'News' BAHRAIN (PDQ). In a stunning development, the Djinni that President Bush summoned by rubbing an oil drum last week admitted today that, "Despite the wishes of the American President, some people in the region just don't want peace, darn it all."

WEST BANK (SNAFU). Hamas shocked the world today by calling for Israel's extinction!

WASHINGTON (CYA). Powell criticized Israel today for fighting a war against terrorists. "Sharon should realize that when he uses gunships to blow up cars carrying the masterminds of murder and mayhem, that, well, it upsets people like Yassir Arafat, and we all know that Arafat is key to the peace process, even though he called a Hamas general on Tuesday and praised Allah that this terrorist was still alive, because Arafat MUST be a key to peace since, after all, he did win a Nobel Prize."

I hope Barnabas comments on the news internationally, because plenty has been done and said which is absurd. In defiance of all logic and history, the Bush administration is acting surprised that the Hamas terrorist organization, which refuses any co-existence with an Israeli state, has done its best to derail peace processes. In response, the Bush Administration is criticizing Israel for pursuing a war on terror, setting a new executive branch standard for two-faced hypocrisy and inconsistency.

Remember: Arafat plotted the last Intifada because Barak had proposed 90% of the West Bank to a Palestinian State. Arafat did this because he knew that staying at the negotiating table made a final settlement a real possibility. This Arafat could not desire, because he came to power by fostering hate. Arafat did not want to be seen as yielding to Israeli initiative, no matter how positive Israel's concession was to Palestinian interests. He could not be seen as negotiating from weakness. He could not accept Israel's charity without shame.

Arafat's phone call of support this week to a Hamas militant demonstrates his interest in any peace process and any co-existence with Israel.

The following groups have no place at the table of Palestinian Statehood: Al Akbar, Hamas, Hezbollah, Yassir Arafat. Arafat needs to be stripped naked in public and displayed on a 24-hour "jail cam" to his eternal and everlasting shame. Arafat must be shamed to such a degree that in no way could he ever be restored to credibility in the eyes of any Palestinian or Arab world-wide.

Meanwhile, Hamas and other terrorist groups need to be pursued with the support and vigilance of the international community in its "War on Terror."
Instead, we criticize Israel for pursuing terrorists. This is the height of hypocrisy. If the world is serious about peace in the Middle East, then support Israel's fight against terror. Remove Arafat from power. Revoke his Nobel Prize.

Someone might criticize me for not having a "nuanced" perspective on international relations. My reply is that for ten years the world has experimented with Arafat's legitimacy. His legacy is a phone call supporting Hamas. How many more buses need to blow up before we realize that Hamas is not a group to be negotiated with? Peace cannot co-exist with Hamas. Hamas must be exterminated.
